  1. I received my card today from a lady who is making mask because of the virus, she brought me a mask along with the card, I am already thinking of forwarding to some lady ne else, thank you!

  2. My son is getting a Cranial helmet on Monday, which will need to be cleaned with isopropyl alcohol 70%. It’s very specific because it needs to not break down the foam and not cause rashes to the baby’s head. Thanks to the Coronavirus I have been to almost 10 stores looking for it and haven’t been able to find any. I posted in a local mom’s group asking for leads if anyone happens to see it while out. Within 24 hours another mom not only let me know where to find some, she went out of her way to get a bottle and drop it off for me with this card. I have no words to describe the relief I felt getting home from work and seeing it sitting there. I can’t wait to find people to continue the legacy and pay it forward.

  3. Hi Mr.Specht,
    You came to my school today it is Chloe.After seeing you and all of that happiness nothing could put a frown on my face.My class and family felt so bad when heard about little Rees.He will always be in everyone’s heart even all of those 650,000 people.Hope to see you next year when I am in fourth grade. I will never forget you or anyone.❤️❤️❤️???????????????

  4. I heard you speak, and it touched me very deeply. I went to my local deli and left your card and $20 for the next 15 people who came through the store to get a cup of hot tea or coffee on this cold day. I asked the owner to show each person your card and let them see the “why”. Hopefully the warm cup fills their body, and your story warms their heart and inspires them to keep spreading kindness.

    • I have had a very stressful and chaotic week. This afternoon I was sitting in my truck at Dunkin donuts thinking to myself “what else can go wrong today?.” I pulled up to the window and as I went to pay, the employee handed me this card and said the person in front of me paid for it. My mood and outlook for the day was immediately changed for the better, I paid for the person behind me and brought the card back to work to read it. It is amazing how a small act of kindness can brighten someones day. I am looking forward to passing this on to someone else with an act of kindness.

  5. I received the card from my grandson he got in school we will share our kindness with someone then forward the card to someone else.

  6. I got it in school today after a assembly with mr.specht, and I felt like a jerk after it because me and my friends made a joke about one of his body details. Afterwards I realized much of a good man he was and what he wanted to do for the world.

  7. I just received the car from a student, ELLA, who is always very nice and respectful.
    Not all the students are kind to teachers, but ELLA shows her kindness with a sense of humor and gracefulness.
    Thanks, and keep being kind, and you will make a difference in people’s life.
